1898 Yorkshire - Aurora Pettigrew has it all, a loving family, a nice home, a comfortable life. She’s waiting for the right man to offer her marriage, and the man for her is Reid Sinclair, heir to the Sinclair fortune and the love of her life.

But, Reid’s mother, Julia, is against the match and her ruthlessness unearths a family secret that will tear Aurora’s world apart.

Unwilling to bring shame on her family and needing answers to the allegations brought to light by Reid’s mother, Aurora begins a long journey away from home. She leaves behind all that is familiar and safe to enter a world of mean streets and poor working class.

Living in the tenements of York, surrounded by people of a class she’d never mixed with before, Aurora struggles to come to terms with the way her life has changed. By chance, she reconnects with a man from her past and before he leaves with the army to war in South Africa, he offers her security through marriage.

Aurora knows she should be happy, but the memory of her love for Reid threatens her future.

When tragedy strikes, can Aurora find the strength to accept her life and forget the past?

But Miss Caroline Mirrington habors a dangerous secret of her own...

A Most Serious Gentleman - Anne Brear

It's 1919 and the war in Europe is over. As the men make their way home to start rebuilding their lives, it quickly becomes clear that some scars are not physical...

Sir Jeremy Remington, a validated war hero, wants to take a wife. Not just any woman, but the woman he's been waiting for, Millie March. Thinking about her got him through the war...and although she accepts his proposal, will she accept him for who he really is, a damaged man?

Getting married had been pushed to the back of Millie March's mind during the war. Moreover, there had never been one man who she felt was 'the one' to marry. And so, she is as surprised as everyone when she accepts Sir Jeremy's proposal.

Her family worries that he's too old, too serious, too quiet and perhaps too damaged to be a loving husband to her. However, Millie's instincts tell her she is making the right decision, but will her growing love be enough to heal the wounds of war?

Have fun with the blog hop, and dont forget the rest of the other blogs :)
